tomorrow. stick around for "the daily rundown" with mr. chuck todd. >>> president obama nips talk of a short term budget deal in the bud. calls leaders back to the white house. define big. a fresh new hampshire poll out find mitt romney holding strong. both in the primary and general but michelle bachmann has made big gains. is it time for republicans to start rally ago rounds a single candidate? some leaders think so. we'll ask the head of the republican party whether he agrees. and look at these pictures. it's a massive -- this is real. not special effects. 50 mile dust storm. it envelopes phoenix, arizona. downed trees. delayed flights. cut off power to thousands. not rain, folks. dust. wednesday, july 6, 2011. i'm chuck todd. let me get to my first reads of the morning. the idea of a short term debt deal gaining momentum in the senate. president nipped that talk in the bud. >> heard reports that there may be some in congress who want to do just enough to make sure that america avoid defaulting on our debt in the short term but then wants to kick the can down the road when it c
Jul 16, 2011 2:00am PDT
when these talks began? >> chuck, i don't know what the end game is going to be. could take another turn. i'm not sure exactly where all the dynamics between the house and the senate are right now. what i do know is that the president said today that he still held out hope to try to get a grand bargain. speaker boehner said the same thing of course in the next breath, speaker boehner said he wasn't willing to close any of his corporate tax loopholes which have been an obstacle to get the deal done. again, i think there's a growing consensus that something will be pulled together, but i think there's a whole lot of -- there are a lot of hurdles along the way to go. >> president in the press conference finally put some detail os the speculation on what it is exactly he put on the table when it comes to entitlements. here's what he said about medicare means testing. >> we've said that we are willing to look at all those approaches. i've laid out some criteria in terms of what would be acceptable. so, for example, i've said very clearly that we should make sure that current beneficiarie

democrats to fill in the gap? what do you say? >> right. the key question there, chuck, is whether there's a sense of fair fnesses and balance. again, whether folks at the high end of the income scale are beginning to contribute going back to the rates we saw during the clinton administration, in a time when the economy was booming. democrats are are prepared to make hard choices. at george washington university the president put on a table a plan that did over $4 trillion in savings over a 12-year period, cuts orn the domestic discretionary but also recognizing that we have to deal with the defense side of the equation. we had a hearing in the budget committee yesterday which was somewhat promising because on a bipartisan basis people recognized there are savings to be made on the pentagon side of the equation. so tough decisions will be made. we have offered ways to strengthen medicare, for example, by giving medicare the same kind of bargaining rights that the veterans administration has when it comes to prescription drugs, things like that. >> had when it comes to this tax deal, it s

>>> we all know how it's going to end. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chuck todd here at the white house. it's a beautiful day. let's have class outside. in tonight for chris matthews. leading off, the adult in the room. that's how president obama is trying to portray himself. the calm daddy trying to discipline the group of unruly children on the other side of pennsylvania avenue. the president again positioned himself as the sensible centrist, insisting the public agrees with him on not just cuts, but taxes, and that republicans in congress are dug in for ideological reasons. the fact is we all know how it's going to end with the debt ceiling being raised, no real big agreement on spending and taxes. all that's left now is about a week of political posturing. plus what would happen politically if no deal was reached and the u.s. does default? would voters blame the president for a faltering economy or hold republicans responsible for refusing to make a deal? the answer to that could determine who wins the 2012 election. also, let's go to the videotape. michelle bachm

hill. chuck todd was there covering it all. he's our chief white house correspondent and he joins us by phone from washington. i know you've been up late. thanks so much for getting up this morning. >> hey, "way too early." >> it all blends together for you at this point. already, chuck, help us out. john boehner is behind closed doors fighting the tea party trying to get the extra votes. he can't come up with them last night. what changes today? how is he going to convince them to come around on this bill? >> they're contemplating two, quote, fixes to the boehner bill to try to make it amenable to anywhere from two to eight republicans that they are short of these conservatives. the two fixes have to do with a sharper cut in pell grant money, pell grants, what you get -- a lot of college students use that to help pay for college. government loans. and the second is potentially turning this issue of the balanced budget amendment and in their bill saying it has to actually be sent to the states. actually pass before the house and senate before they'll consider one more debt ceiling vo

. >>> our chief white house correspondent political director chuck todd is with us tonight from the white house. chuck, it seems to me there are almost two planes going on here. number one, the problem itself, and it couldn't be more important the various plans and solutions and theories on how to fix it. but number two, the toxic event this has become in our country. >> reporter: that's right. and the president is going to talk about the toxic part of this to declare that washington is at a stalemate. he's going to make the case that boehner's plan can't pass the senate, may not even be able to get through the house, that's still unclear. and that reid's plan probably won't even get through the senate and certainly can't get through the house. so the purpose of the speech tonight is not substance. there isn't going to be a new plan that the president is going to lay out. there isn't going to be, for instance, a plan to talk about how the government is preparing for default if god forbid that happens a week from today. but instead he's going to make the case that we're at a stalemate, we

correspondent chuck todd. chuck, of course, listened to it from up here. they think they have the momentum, all of it on this side of washington. is the view the same where you are? >> reporter: the view is the same. the reality is setting in that the best the white house can hope for is that the democrats in the u.s. senate stick together and stay by harry reid, even if the boehner bill passes. clearly john boehner was rallying conservatives today, on talk radio trying to rally votes. now, tomorrow, if it passes, we're going to expect harry reid to do one of two things. he will either hurry up and introduce boehner's vote, let it get its up or down vote and get it voted down and move to his plan, or i'm told he could very well accept the boehner bill and then start amending it and trying to get rid of what is the major sticking point, which is this idea of having another debt limit vote in six to nine months, which, of course, the white house does not want. and that's still the sticking point, how do you create this so-called trigger, brian? >> i couldn't find anybody up here willing to say th

capitol hill. and across town we go to our chief white house correspondent, our political director chuck todd, who's been talking to both sides in these talks. and chuck, this was compared again today to something we have all done, pay down just the interest on the credit card for that month because the bolder and sometimes impossible thing to do is pay it all off for that month. >> reporter: that's right, the bottom line, brian, is they're farther apart today than they were yesterday, than they were thursday, than they were wednesday. speaker boehner and president obama were concocting secret deals or potential secret deals on the golf course. at this point, what happened today at these meetings, mostly he had eric cantor, the number two guy in the house walking through what he believed were the cuts that they agreed to. they only got to $1.7 trillion over ten years, that's a lot of money, but us doesn't meet the threshold that speaker boehner said and it didn't include any tax increases. at one point, president obama said to eric cantor, i'm not going to cut programs for college studen
Jul 30, 2011 5:00am EDT
let me finish with a solution right in front of their nose. chuck, who holds the cards now? >> right now we're looking at a group of republican senators that are ready to potentially deal with harry reid. that's what this could come down to. could come down in the next few hours. there are people publicly today that came out for cutting a deal john thune from south dakota, bob corker of tennessee, roy blunt of missouri, scott brown of massachusetts. i didn't even mention the main republicans who most people assume would be available for a potential crossover appeal. but i can tell you this right now, harry reid is dangling a lot of things to try to attract republicans. a few more cuts up front. a promise of a vote on a balanced budget amendment. not linking passage to the next round of cuts. making quote, the trigger stronger for the second round of deficit reduction. all this is about one thing that the white house cares about, getting rid of the second debt ceiling vote that would take place in six to nine months if john boehner and mitch mcconnell got the bill that they wanted. >>

:00 a.m. chuck bell standing by in the weather center with an update. chuck, how hot did it get today? >> another day in the record books, that's all that matters. we keep breaking one record after another. we set a record before the sun even came up this morning. the overnight low temperature at national airport dropped to only 84 degrees. that's a record high overnight low temperature for the date. and i suspect i'm going to be look through the record books, and i think it will tie the warmest high temperature ever in washington, tied with one other day when we only dropped to 84. right now we're at 100 degrees at national airport. 99 manassas. 99 fairfax. 95 in gaithersburg. indices a touch better than yesterday, but still dangerously hot, nearly 100 to 110 degrees in just abouten neighborhood. a couple of lonesome thunderstorms primarily down to the south, and some up near the pennsylvania line. they should be fading away with time. we'll talk about that in the complete forecast coming up. >>> several people were rushed to the hospital for heat problems at the civil war re-enactme

daily rundown" with mr. chuck todd. >> well, it's the closest we're ever going to get to a national debate on the debt ceiling. it was the president and the speaker in primetime. but with just one week left until the deadline, are we actually any closer to a solution? by the way, where are the votes? with prominent tea party blasting the plan, a path of 217 that doesn't include more than a handful of democrats? and chris christie goes to iowa. he's not running. we know that. but we keep for getting to compliment the current field. hmm. what's he up to? good morning from washington. i'm chuck todd. what a spectacle last night. let's get to our first reads. the word of the day, it's dysfunction after weeks and months of intense negotiations. not only are we not closer to a deal, we might be farther away from one. listen to the two men speaking last night, the president and the speaker. >> despite our disagreements, republican leaders and i have found common ground before and i believe that enough members of both parties will ultimately put politics aside and help us make progress. >>

in washington, the other end of pennsylvania avenue. our chief white house correspondent chuck todd. >> reporter: everybody is waiting for john boehner to sign off on this deal. it goes right to what kelly's reporting. it's this issue of how deep would the defense cuts be, not just in the deal itself in the first part, but also in the size of it, in the so-called trigger. you heard truchuck schumer talk about having the sharp-edged sword hanging over the head. because you're not going to have taxes hanging over to compel this super committee to work, the other solution was the threat of pretty deep defense cuts. well, now house republicans are balking and there's a lot of hang wri hand wringing over this. this has been an odd soap opera today. the first part of the day everyone thought it was democrat k holding off on the deal. republicans were saying they're there, they're there, they're there. then democrats signed on. all of the sudden they're balking. if issue goes back to the same issue we've been dealing with for weeks. how does this get through the house? nobody has a path yet. >> yet ano

problems seems to be slipping away. chief white house correspondent chuck todd now joins us. chuck? >> reporter: ann, it wasn't the heat, it was the debt ceiling here in washington. lots of heated rhetoric. it got ugly and even a bizarre proposal in congress that could be a back doorway to solve the crisis. here's the president in an interview with cbs about social security checks. >> i cannot guarantee that those checks go out on august 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue because there may simply not be the money in the coffers. >> but a meeting just ended with those congressional leaders here at the white house and they have opened their minds up to this back-up plan idea. it came from the mind of mitch mcconnell, the senate republican leader which essentially would create instead of a vote of approval on debt ceiling, it would become a vote of disapproval to stop it. it's odd, but everybody seems signed on to it. it's the new backup plan, ann. >> chuck todd in washington. thanks so much for your reporting on the story. >>> now let's turn to the phone hacking scandal in britain

Jul 10, 2011 6:30pm EDT
and political director chuck todd. chuck, how much influence has the tea party had in moving republicans away from this idea of a $4 trillion package of cuts? >> they had a lot of influence, lester. the reason why speaker boehner had to bakeck away from the ide of grand bargain, over the last 48 hours both parties have been taking the temperature of their bases when it comes to democrats trying to figure out if there was support for some of these tough medicare and social security cuts and republicans trying to figure out if they could do massive tax reform that, in the long run, would bring in a trillion dollars in tax revenues that would go to deficit reduction. and the bottom line is john boehner's deputy, eric cantor, was very skeptical. and he didn't have the support. boehner didn't have the support. if he had had the support and the political capital, we wouldn't be in the situation we're in. >> he doesn't get the support. this is in many ways a test of his leadership. how does he do? >> he decided not to test his leadership. that's the issue here, lester. he made the decision that he d

degrees. >> chuck, thank you. well, of course this extreme heat has a lot of people trying to get out and get stuff done early. news 4's derrick ward is live at dupont circle for us this morning. derrick, i feel bad. three days in a row you've been doing this heat thing. >> well, i appreciate the empathy. it makes me a little bit cooler. not a whole lot, though. thermometer showing 86 degrees. 90 before noon. i think we will make it. to get a idea how hot it is, metro is relaxing some of its rules. you know bottom line it's hot. they are relaxing as it pertains to water. they will give you a pass on that. however, they are asking that you dispose of your bottles properly using trash receptacles. they have brought more staff in to make sure they have escalators and elevators that are working and air-conditioning on cars. that had been the issue for the last couple days as well. however, you know, folks, still want to get out and away. not everyone is using the subway. one guy, despite the heat, is still manage to go get in some exercise. >> normally i'll ride any time of the day. now b

through the weekend? chuck bell here with the answers. and i want you to lie to me. >> okay. here's the deal. it will be a hot weekend, but not quite as crazy hot as it was yesterday. yesterday was probably the hottest of the stretch here going into this weekend. just like last week when friday was the hottest day but saturday and sunday were just a touch better, sort of the same thing this weekend. so 104 yesterday. the all-time record high temperature at national airport is only 106. we've only been there twice and the last time was in 1930. so it's been a long time since we've been anywhere near that high. outside right now on a beautiful saturday morning, sun is just about ready to sneak up in the eastern sky. 81 degrees our current temperature at national airport. good news is we have a nice breeze out there. yesterday afternoon, the breeze was quite refreshing. today we'll have much the same. high temperatures this afternoon will once again be well up into the 90s. current early morning top temperature, 81 in town, 73 in culpepper and gaithersburg 77 degrees. heat indices no

blue. >>> good morning from washington. it's friday, july 22nd, 2011. i'm chuck todd. july 22nd, a very important date to me. i'll tell you later. >>> let's get right to my first reads of the morning. now we know there are really two sticking points holding up the debt ceiling deal. substance and ego. we'll start with ego. the house and the senate are each selling something that the other side won't buy supposedly. but as speaker boehner realized that the mcconnell/reid plan wouldn't fly in the house at all, he came back around to a bigger bargain and decided that he and cantor were better off cutting a deal directly. possibly $3 trillion in spending cuts. now, the senate, it was -- when history is written on this, the idea of the mitch mcconnell fail-safe plan actually motivated some of the base in the house, boehner's base, in the tea party caucus, to say, hey, wait a minute, we didn't come here to givek(q the presid more power when it comes to spending. we came here to try to cut spending, brought boehner, brought the white house back to the table, back to talking about something big

early what time it is? >> it's "morning joe." stick around right now for "the daily rundown" with chuck. >>> well, it's like kenny rogers says. you've got to know when to hold them and know when to fold them. speaker boehner's time at table is quickly running out. will he walk away or will he jun the world and the markets are watching. just four days left until the debt limit deadline. >>> plus -- >> any bottlehead can stand up here, you know, and say the right words. as a republican candidate. >> well, we've been distracted here in washington things are getting hot out on the campaign trail. and tim pawlenty is not the only one starting to aim fire internally. good morning from washington. it's friday. july 29th, 2011. i'm chuck todd. what a 24 hours. right to my first read of the morning. it's as fluid as it can get. many house republicans were ready and willing last night but weren't able to bring speaker boehner's bill to the floor for a vote. rules committee chairman david dryor sized up the situation late last night. >> as we all know, we were expecting a vote this evening, and th

for chuck todd and "the daily rundown." >>> london calling. rupert murdoch faces parliament as the uk media hacking scandal deepens. more resignations moshgs questions and now an early whistle-blower is dead. the news corps chief testimony, will it make things better or worse? headed across the pond. we're going to find out this hour. >>> back here in the state. cue the blame game. the debt deal is coming and nobody likes it. will anyone come out of this looking good? >> and her first appearance since taking the reins of her party. >>> it's tuesday, july 19, 2011, i'm chuck todd. let's get to my first story, the debt talk. it's the beginning of the blame game. a deal to avoid a default will likely come at the last minute and virtually no one and the finger pointing is starting early. yesterday. berkshire hathaway warren buffett chided leaders for missing a big opportunity. >> i think that any plan that simply says, you know, think about this later essentially, and we're going to try and figure out how things went wrong to blame it on the other party is a terrible mistake. we cannot go to au

package. i don't know what the speaker or mr. mcconnell are willing to do at this point. chuck todd. >> mr. president, this process got kind of ugly in the last week and it appears from the outside that things even got a little futile at these meetings. any regrets on your role on how this went and $4 trillion over ten years and spent the last six months selling that, the balance package to the american people? >> no. first of all, i think this notion that things got ugly is just not true. we've been meeting every single day and we have had very constructive conversations. you know, the american people are not interested in reality tv aspects of who said what and did somebody's feelings get hurt. they're interested in solving the budget problem and the deficit and the debt. so, that may be good for chatter in this town. it's not something that folks out in the country are obsessing about. i think with respect to simpson, it was important for us to, it would not have happened i had not set up the structure for it, as you may recall. this is bipartisan legislation that some of the republican

together. >> in the briefing room our chief white house correspondent, chuck todd. the president will come through the door behind where you are, chuck. what are you hearing? >> that's right. it's what david said so in many ways this press conference is an attempt for the president to keep his voice in the conversation but look, talks are over here. there might not be another round of talks with these eight members of the leadership from here forward. instead, this is a conversation taking place between harry reid, mitch mcconnell and white house aides. place between harry reid, mitch mcconnell and white house aides. >> chuck, the president walking in. we'll hear from him. >> yesterday we had another meeting with the congressional leaders. we aren't having one today. so i thought it would be useful to give you guys an update on where we are. all the congressional leaders have reiterated the desire to make sure that the united states does not default on our obligations. and that default the united states has preserved. that is a good thing. i think we should not even be this close to a dead

strategist julie, comedian chuck and cnn contributor john avalon. all of you good citizens who i know have over the last few months, you know, just shaken your heads at what's going on. julie, start with you, there was a time when a handshake with the president of the united states was a life inspiring moment as it was here for a young president bill clinton seen here meeting president kennedy. this debt ceiling debacle in washington, has the presidency itself lost some of its grav vi tus, not talking about the president, the presidency? >> i think the presidency has not lost its grav tus because the president is still the president. both parties are acting like school kids in junior high school trying to figure out who's going to ask who to the prom and playing hard to get. that's become increasingly frustrating to everybody, i don't care if you're democrat, republican or independent. everybody is fed up, sick of it. this is not high school, not even junior high school i'm going to give them too much credit saying they're in high school. suck it up and realize they're here to do work and

in washington? lester? >> our chief white house correspondent and political cc1: director chuck todd joins us now. chuck, we heard there that troops there are putting a face to this issue of what happens if the u.s. can't pay its bills. does this or anything like this have any effect on lawmakers in these final hours? >> reporter: boy,if it doesn't it should. i have to say that was pretty sobering to see. i read about this, knew what admiral mullen had said in response to this question. but when you see it, and you see those young faces and you know those are young families, you've got to think this does have an impact at end of the day. we already know about 15 republican senators who are not interested in keeping this standoff going any longer. >> as much drama as we're witnessing, in the back of i think a lot of our minds it's like, well, they'll figure it out. they always get right down to the wire and figure it out. let's assume that's the case. how do they get there 72 hours from now to tuesday? how do they get there? >> reporter: obviously there's a dispute right now happening between
